Nominate volunteers, groups for Governor's Service Award

  • 0

Haywood County is looking for volunteers that have gone above and beyond in this last year. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. Nominations are due by Feb. 5.

The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers. Through the years, the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community.

Each county selects up to 10 individuals, businesses, groups/teams and one paid director of volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to their communities. One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to the top 20 volunteers in the state.

Nomination forms are available in Haywood County at the following location: 81 Elmwood Way- Haywood County Senior Resource Center, by email at or call John Chicoine at 356-2833.

Nomination forms are also available online at
